Thai Cuisine

Thai cuisine is a rich tradition of Thailand. It is not just food. Rather, it is the combination of different elements, cultures, and way of life. Different regions of this country will have different produce which all combine to make aromatic dishes, using a variety of ingredients, freshness, and well-balanced flavors.

          The food from this country is best known for its vibrant flavors and colors, which go along very well with the balance that is provided by what we find in the nature. The easiest flavor profile to identify Thai food is very simple – sour, spicy, and salty.

          The spices used are usually fresh or dry chili, pepper, garlic, and ginger. The level of spiciness of each dish can always be adjusted according to personal preferences.

Instead of using only salt like most cuisines, Thai food relies on seasoning with fish sauce, otherwise known as “Nam Plaa”. This is a product from fermenting fish or shrimps with sea salt, resulting in iodine-rich and flavorful liquid which is used to season Thai food.

To brighten the flavors of Thai food and cut the richness of fish sauce, fresh green lime is used in Thai food for flavoring as well.

          All these fresh ingredients; plus even more, complete the distinctive flavor profile of the unique Thai cuisine. The famous cuisine which until date, continues to brighten up your taste buds with the most exotic flavors.
